Cheesy Beyond Belief
12 December 2018 | by drednmSee all my reviews

This "documentary" is basically a PR tie in to a book and the old AMC cable channel.

The book's co-authors (really? it took 2 people to write this?) share air time of this flimsy bit of fluff that sure seems to favor the AMC line-up of stars, especially those from 20th Century Fox movies.

While there are some interesting tidbits here and there, most of this hour-long show is padded and skewed toward newer stars and events like STAR WARS and Michael Keaton and Whoopi Goldberg. There's very little about the silent era and stars, and more info on Sid Grauman himself would have been welcome.

And way too many errors. Shots of silent stars with no IDs, One ID claims Janet Gaynor and Franklin Pangborn, when it's Gaynor and Adolphe Menjou from A STAR IS BORN. One gushing tourist can't wait to find the prints of "Jeanette Gaynor." Good luck, bub.

Then there's Raquel Welch as hostess who keeps mispronouncing Norma Talmadge's name as TALL-madge. Constance Talmadge is shown in a shot with Grauman but never identified.

The film clips are all pretty meaningless and have nothing to do with the actual cement slabs. Cheesy and badly done. I bet this ran on AMC quite a few times.
